Fonzarelli release the all-new Aussie NKD electric motorcycle
Fonzarelli’s NKD – Australia’s first locally designed, manufactured and retail-ready emission-free motorbike, is now on sale Nationally through re-sellers as a made to order, customisable special. Base model pricing starts from $9,990 + ORC and early customers should be able to have their bikes ready for summer, according the Fonzarelli Motorcycles.
In keeping with Fonzarelli’s design credentials – which recently earned the top-of-the-line scooter, the X1, a Good Design Award – the NKD offers premium detailing and clever tech integration. Using a standard 240W plug and a Panasonic Lithium- Ion 3.5kWh inbuilt battery, it has an on-board charger and optional portable charger.
“The bike has many customisation options, and riders can select add-ons like a stylish hand-stitched honeycomb saddle in Lambo-style Alcantara suede, a USB port for charging devices on the go, integrated LED headlamp, tail-lamp and bar-end turn signals, LCD dash screen, and dual sport off-road knobby Pirelli tyres,” says Fonzarelli founder Michelle Nazzari.
“The NKD is Australia’s first retailed electric motorbike,” says Nazzari.
“While other prototypes have been floated, this vehicle is now available for order through Fonzarelli retailers and online”.
NKD’s highly efficient mid-drive motor is a permanent magnet brushless format that produces 9.6kW of instantaneous power and an explosive torque of 56Nm. The electric dual-sport mini-motorcycle has a range of up to 120km (dependent on battery size selected) and can produce 6000rpm with a top speed of 100km/h.
“It’s for those who can appreciate power in a silent format, are keen to slice through city traffic and also see two wheels as the ticket to adventure – not just getting from A to B. Its performance makes it the perfect off-road toy. It’ll accelerate to 100km/h in 5s. It’s just a lot of fun”.
